Congressmen Ask IRS To Investigate CAIR For Lobbying Violations

Five U.S. Congressmen have sent a letter to the Commission of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requesting that the agency investigate the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) for possible violations of its non-profit status. The letter [1] states:

It has come to our attention that the Council on American ISlamic Relations (CAIR) may be in violation of both the anti-excessive lobbying provision of its 501c3 non-profit status and of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 by its failure to register with the Congress as a federal lobbying organization.

The letter goes on to detail the basis for the request for such an investigation. Four of the Congressmen, all House Republicans, earlier accused CAIR of trying to plant spies on Capitol Hill in the form of Muslim interns. The four were joined in this letter by Senator Tom Coburn (R-O.K.)

Documents [2] released in the Holy Land Trial have revealed that the founders and current leaders of CAIR were part of the Palestine Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood as well as identifying the organization itself as being part of the U.S. Brotherhood. A recent post [3] discussed an interview with the Deputy leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in which he confirms a relationship between his organization and CAIR. Investigative research [4] posted on GMBDR had determined that CAIR had it origins in the U.S. Hamas infrastructure and CAIR and it leaders have a long history of defending almost all individuals accused of terrorism by the U.S. government, frequently calling such prosecutions a “war on Islam.” As discussed in previous posts [5], It appears that the FBI has recently ended its long-standing relationship with CAIR.
